What are the chances two people living States apart in the US would meet in the upstairs knitting attic of a (non-closed) yarn shop along historical Mainstreet in Unionville, Ontario, Canada? That’s just how I met Janette, wife of The Whispering Woodturner! When it came to finding a prize for Air Bender MKAL, she popped to mind as Whispering was one of the potential name ideas 😊. Let’s get to know our generous prize donor a little better. Please welcome Janette and hubby, Steve, to our event!

A Tale of Two Princesses
Legend holds that a princess was enjoying a cup of tea in the garden when a silk cocoon dropped into her cup. The warm tea loosened the cocoon “glue” and as she pulled it out, she was first to see the lustrous and strong fiber that comprised it.

Summer knitting invites easy stitches with June Blooms. Inspired by my gramma June’s dying words to me, “keep knitting; keep designing,” it contrasts her love of simple garment design with the vibrant colors of a day in the garden. June Blooms works beautifully over tank tops and long-sleeved shirts alike.
